Forged Denim Pants - Women's is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great stretch but too stretch? I bough these one year ago as the ideal perfect single pair to travel and climb in which they are are! they look very good and do not restrict motion at all whilst climbing, they are also very resistant (tested on grit bouldering) BUT ... the waist is way too loose! I originally bought them in size 6 being 165cm and 54kg. Used them a couple of times for climbing but they started sagging straight. I couldn't return them since they were used ... so I bought the smallest size 2 which fits better but still too loose around the waist after a bit of use whilst being tight around the thighs (I'm "skinny" but not too skinny and have an average muscular leg build due to hiking and running). I cannot walk without the jeans sliding off my bum! It's a shame because I really like them but have to improve a belt with a sling between every single climb as cannot climb with a belt and wearing a harness...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Bought these less than 2 months ago, already falling apart. These stitching is coming undone and the fabric is starting to ball up and fall apart between the legs. Besides that I gave them two stars because they are very comfortable. But cost to much to already be falling apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these jeans!!!! These are basically the best jeans I’ve owned. Thanks Black Diamond!!! I bought my first pair at REI, and bought a size 12. They seemed to fit perfect, like a glove in the store, but when I tried them with a few outfits, it was clear they were actually too big. I returned them for a 10, and I am in love!!! These jeans are flattering and functional. They have just the right rise. They stay up. They look great with everything, and I feel like I can rely on them for just about any activity—biking, hiking, working, homework, shopping, you name it. I’m 5’4, 165ish pounds, with an out of shape tummy :) I just bought my 2nd pair online in another color. I really hope I like them, and I hope they’ll release more colors!!! Bottom line: basically the perfect jean for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great look, poorly designed I bought these jeans because of the look and the fact they were supposed to be durable. Fell apart at the seams in several places and even the weave came loose just from washing. Not climbing jeans and not the quality one would expect from black diamond. Sales team was helpful with return but could only have them exchanged. Would not recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for my curvy athletic body! I am completely stunned at how well these jeans fit my curvy, athletic size 12 booty. I’m going to buy a second pair, as I love how comfortable and confident that these jeans make me feel.Thanks BD for designing pants for women with curves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, stretchy, and durable At first these seemed just like extra-stretchy and comfortable jeans, and I was wearing them around town... but I took them out bouldering the other day and the black granite rock tore up my skin and even put a couple holes in my shirt, but these jeans look as good as they did straight out of the box and they definitely took a beating out there. I never felt like my range of motion was limited. My only wish is that they were a slightly higher rise, especially in the back. Otherwise these are almost perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Felt wired through the seat These are really nice jeans but they did not work out for me. They felt like they would work their way off my bottom, like they were made to squish your bottom unnaturally. This made me feel uncomfortable despite the jeans being perfect in every other way. Sadly, I had to send them back because I felt like I would constantly need to be pulling them up over my bottom even with a belt. I’m probably the 1% these jeans did not work for - no love lost btwn me and BDE tho, jeans are tricky

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Even for a big girl! I bought these pants not expecting what I got, because let's face it, it's hard to find a comfy versatile climbing jean being 5'1" and wears a size 12... I certain plan on getting more!!
